Full On-Board Diagnostics:

The modern motor vehicles we see on our roads today have evolved from the vehicles we saw on our roads in the last decade, and are becoming more and more technologically advanced with every new make and model released.

Each individual system on a modern vehicle is managed by it’s own electronic control unit (ECU), from the Engine System, Braking system, lighting system, Safety systems such as the Airbag/SRS system, Instruments etc…

All of which need to be interrogated, diagnosed & repaired using equally advanced Diagnostic Equipment.

I currently offer Dealer Level Diagnostic Ability using Main Dealer Diagnostic Tools for BMW, VAG (Vw, Audi, Skoda, Seat),Vauxhall, SAAB, Ford, Mazda, Landrover, Jaguar, Renault, Peugeot, and Citroen.

Do not pay main dealer prices for a job that can be done by myself at a fraction of the cost, and done at a time that best suits you.

I also cover all other vehicle manufacturers using a generic scan tool.

ECU Re-Mapping/Performance Tuning:

For engine control units that are "flash programmable", I offer the advantage of Ecu Re-Mapping, (also known as chip tuning). Re-Mapping is a modification to the manufacturers’ vehicle tuned data, designed to improve engine and running performance. These Re-Mapped files are downloaded to the vehicle's engine ECU through the on-board diagnostic connector. Chip tuning can usually be carried out on a vehicle within one hour at the customer’s convenience.


  • Increased power & torque
  • Smoother delivery of power
  • Increased fuel economy in most diesel applications
  • Sharper throttle response
  • Faster acceleration
  • Reduced number of gear changes

All upgrades are done through the Diagnostic connector, meaning the ECU has no need to be opened up or removed 

ECU Re-Mapping Frequently Asked Questions

Security & Safety:

I supply and install the latest Thatcham Approved Vehicle Tracking Systems.

I also offer a full range of the latest Handsfree Car Kits, to be supplied and fitted at your convenience. 

Reverse Parking Systems are a great addition to any car, and I supply and install the latest Laserline kits on the market.

Starting & Charging:

With the modern ignition systems, vehicles do tend to start much better these days, consequently taking the strain off starter motors, alternators and batteries. But all of these still fail eventually and I supply and fit all of these.
It is worth noting I attend a considerable number of customers who have spent a small fortune on these items on the say so of a Well meaning friend only to find it was a loose wire or something as simple all along. So don’t get caught out, it can pay to have a professional diagnosis!

General Electrical Faults:

I cover all areas of Auto-Electrical work, Lighting, Heating, Cooling Fans, Audio, Central door locking, Electric windows etc…
If in any doubt feel free to give me a call.
